5 Reasons to Start Yoga in January
No need for fasting in mid-winter – regular yoga practice can speed up your metabolism. Twisting, stretching and exhaling releases the toxins accumulated from Christmas feasting, making your digestive system work harder and detoxing your whole body.
2. BEAT SICKNESS
Yoga practice helps you slow down, reducing stress hormones that compromise the immune system – helping to beat off lurking viruses that surround us in winter-time.
3. BE HAPPY
Feel energised and wake up happy! Breathing deeply increases oxygen levels in your blood, which as well as making your heart pump more effectively, causes the brain to release more endorphins
4. TONE YOUR BODY
Deep stretching alongside the cardio sequences of dynamic yoga strengthens your core, helping you to feel lean and strong. Lose the computer hunch, open up your body and feel good inside your own skin.
5. SLEEP BETTER
Yoga calms the mind and tires out the body, helping you to switch off at night and have deep restful sleep, waking up refreshed and energised.
